Subscription-based gift boxes are everywhere now. You can get them for makeup, health food, beer—hell, you can even get them for your pet. But this has to be the best iteration we’ve seen yet: TREATMiNT Box. It’s the first-ever variety created specifically for cancer patients and survivors, and it’s the brainchild of Philly gal Kimberly Fink (who’s pretty much one of the strongest, most stylish women we know), along with her business partner and childhood best friend Wendy Nichols.


Each box is curated by cancer patients and survivors to include things that they would, well, actually want. The boxes include four to five feel-good and practical goods (they say to expect "art prints, all-natural beauty products, cozy socks, organic scarves, tech goodies and tried-and-tested snacks") to aid in keeping your loved one's spirits up.

Friends, family, and caregivers can send boxes in single increments or set up a subscription service for three, six, or twelve months at a time.  The gifts change monthly and each box costs $50 each. Gifts are delivered in sturdy boxes emblazoned with inspirational messages that the recipient can reuse. They have also partnered up with local designers like Duke & Winston, to create sweet original products. 

Here's how to get 'em: They're set to launch on Mother's Day, May 11th during the 24th Annual Komen Philadelphia Race for the Cure. That day, you'll be able to place pre-orders online here, and box delivery will begin on June 1, which coincides with National Cancer Survivors Day.
